I've been to the Greek Lady more than ten times by now. The reason I keep going back is because I can always rely on it for great, delicious and usually healthy food! This restaurant has great hours too so I can go whenever I'm graving a yummy veggie gyro. I'm vegan so I usually end up getting the veggie... More

The Greek Lady is a busy, sometimes noisy spot near the U of Penn campus, so most of the diners are students and U of P staff, some folks from the neighborhood. Order at the counter and they bring you your meal (so leave a tip, for goodness' sake, because they also clear your tray, etc.). Food is fresh and... More

I'm happy that we took the recommendation to eat at this restaurant while our dog was going through diagnostic testing at the Univ. of Penn. It was a quick, 10-minute walk from campus. We arrived shortly after 11:30 a.m. and I'm very happy that we did...because by noon the line was almost out the door! I had the chicken gyro... More

yummy pita sandwiches but I hate their hummus. They put french fries on everything. I'm not sure if I like that. But for lunch, it's a nice change from the usual.

During my summer school at Wharton, I discovered the Greek Lady and its absolutely delicious Grilled Veggie Pita. The staff was always friendly, smiling and welcoming. The no-fuss food and generous portions were a delight to me as a student then. I'd definitely visit the place when I go to Philly again. (I frequented this place during June - August... More

There were quite a few restaurants on 40th street, yet this one was so much more popular than others when we visited on the U Penn Parents weekend. You could sit either inside or outside. Once you ordered at the counter, they brought the food over to your table. The salad portion was humongous. I packed 2 boxes first knowing... More

The lamb gyro is generous in portion size and a scrumptious mix of sliced meat, tomatoes, lettuce, onion and French fries,,tenderly wrapped in bread and drizzled with a yogurt garlic sauce. Great for a satisfying meal on the go. Definitely recommended!
